Just because the headlight work doesn't mean the battery is good enough to crank the engine, that takes 150"s of amps or more. Bottom line have the battery tested by a local parts store, it is free.

SOURCE: I need my check engine light to turn off in my 2002 Audi A6

You need to have the car scanned to address the issue that is causing the check engine light to come on. The computer will reset the check engine light once the issue has been addressed and there is not more issues. The scanner can also reset the light but if the problem is still there the light will just come on again. Good luck and hope this helps, Auto Zone scan free of charge.

P1411 - secondary air injection system flow too low Bank 2.
P1423 - secondary air injection system flow too low Bank 1.
Check vacuum hoses to combi valves ,
most common split air injection pump which is riveted with aluminum rivets,ck rivets if they coming out ,pump doesn't build enough pressure.
In this case take pump out and put bolts instead of rivets all around pump case.Repl. all rivets not only broken one.Bolts sold at HomeDepot , just find a needed size.

Why does my battery keep dying in my audi 1997 a6? When it's running and the fan kicks on the voltage meter jumps down. When the lights are on and then fan kicks on my lights dim.

The battery seems to have reached end of design life. Replace. Also check charging system for voltage. With engine idling check voltage at battery terminals. It should be about 14 volts.

What is P0300 in Audi A6

Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) P0300

Multiple Cylinder Misfire (Increase Emission)

Circuit Features

  • To detect whether the engine is misfiring, the ECM keeps a check on the crankshaft.
  • The ECM also supervises the camshaft positions for the same purpose as mentioned in the first sentence.
  • The ECM waits to pick up signals for a quick dip in crankshaft speed.
  • The system executes this test in blocks of 1000 engine revolution tests.
  • The number of tests may vary between one to many in order to store a DTC, the MIL.
  • If there is a misfire then the MIL will begin to glow , indicating that catalyst damage is likely to occur.

My crank sensor for 1997 Audi A6 quattro is showing low voltage and wont start what is causing this

Your crank sensor is bad. That is also what causes a no start like you are experiencing. The crank sensor takes the place of a distributor and tells the computer what position the engine or crank is at so it knows where to send the spark. You are going to need to have the crank sensor replaced.
